DIgSILENT moved to their new offices

End May 2002: DIgSILENT GmbH moved to their new offices in the "UNIPRO" Business Park in Gomaringen – just some 900 meters away from the old office at Buchenstraße 10. After a planning phase of 6 months the "first sod" was turned on September 3rd, 2001. Within a construction time of only 9 months, the new office, with its 1300 m2, was completed. The 7.17 kW photovoltaic system installed on the flat rooftop generated its first kWh on June 18th, 2002.

"We are happy to have now the opportunity to grow further as we did in the past years" said Dr. Schmieg, General Manager of DIgSILENT GmbH. "Our extremely successful PowerFactory software and our associated consulting activities have increased in the past years by several 100%, making this step urgently required to serve our customers with the best possible performance. Now, we have also the opportunity to implement an adopted company structure and to start with new business activities. Research and development in new technologies such as modern wind power and dispersed generation will be a new focus. Regular user training and special seminars on selected topics will start soon".

The concept for the new office was intensively discussed with all our employees finally leading to a mix of individual working rooms and larger office areas allowing for best possible combination of communication and individual concentration. A number of meeting rooms invites for small ad-hoc working-group meetings, but can also accommodate seminars with a large number of participants. Sufficiently spare capacity is available not only for further growth, but to allow also client engineers and external experts to feel comfortable at DIgSILENT Gomaringen.
